I'm looking for some advice to decide which school would be the better option for me. I got into American's part-time program with no money and St. John's full-time with $18,200 (with TAP it's like $20,000).
Is it really worth paying PT sticker for a school ranked 48 (I plan on working at the same time)? Or should I just go with the money at a T2.
I have hopes of transferring so would going to AU over STJ give me a better edge in terms of moving up higher? Or are their ranking difference negligible.
Thanks in advance!
Don't listen to him. Go to St John's for sure. People get jobs out of St. John's in NYC. Even biglaw. No debt = no risk if you don't, you can start your own practice in the business capital of the world.
No, no they don't.
If I had to take one of your options, I'd take Chicago-Kent, which is actually kind of respected in Chicago.
Think about going to St. John's in NY - you're behind Harvard, Yale, Columbia, NYU, Fordham, Cardozo, and probably a lot of T-14 grads that want to practice in NYC. The competition will be vicious.
As for top 20%? Make that top-1-3%. Don't go into law school assuming you'll do well/work hard enough to do well, because many of your classmates will make the same assumption.
Your ideas and logic are right. But thats just not the experience on the ground.
